Management Holds Maiden Meeting with Alumni (SUTECH, SPOLY & STU)

Ing. Prof. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah, the Vice-Chancellor of the Sunyani Technical University has observed that maintaining good relationship with Alumni over time is crucial to the success of higher educational institutions.

This is because Alumni play many valuable roles, such as helping to build and grow an institution’s brand through word-of-mouth marketing while positive posts on social media could create a buzz and increase admission rates.

According to him, proud alumni often serve as powerful ambassadors for their institution's brand and speak glowingly of their Alma-Mata.

“Alumni are usually nostalgic about their alma mater and always itch for opportunities to return to campus. For this reason, I appeal to the leadership and all Alumni of STU to look back to collaborate with the Management of the University to have a comprehensive plan to give a face-lift to the Sunyani Technical University Campus as we look forward to celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the University come next year, 2022.”

Ing. Prof. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah was addressing the maiden meeting of STU alumni and management held over the weekend to, among others, bring past students on board in the development of the institution.

The meeting, which was held on zoom, attracted several thousands of STU, which began in 1967 as Sunyani Technical Institute before it was upgraded to a Polytechnic in 1997, and now a university.

“It is indeed refreshing to have this unique opportunity to welcome you back to your prestigious alma mater as distinguished Alumni Association Members of Sunyani Technical University which actually includes, all past students of Sunyani Technical Institute (SUTEC), Sunyani Polytechnic (SPOLY) and Sunyani Technical University (STU)”, the Vice-Chancellor said.

He said the University has created an Alumni Secretariat on campus to manage all Alumni affairs, adding that “your concerns, contributions and feedbacks are always welcome.”

“The University belongs to you as Alumni Association and hence, let us build it together so that we can succeed together. Let us all try to contribute our quota for the smooth implementation of the STU development plans for a productive and sustainable outcome.”

About STU and its Alumni

The Sunyani Technical University which started as Sunyani Technical Institute (SUTECH) in 1967 to offer Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to Middle School Leavers, was later in 1997 upgraded to a Polytechnic by the Polytechnics Law 1992 (PNDCL 321), which was subsequently repealed by the Polytechnics Act 2007 (Act 745), to provide training for the Middle-Level manpower needs of the country.

Recently in 2016, following the promulgation of the Technical Universities Act, 2016 (Act 922 as amended), the Polytechnic was converted into Technical University with a new mandate to provide higher education in Engineering, Science and Technology based disciplines, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Applied Arts and related disciplines.

Vision of Sunyani Technical University

The new Vision carved for the University, after its conversion, is ‘To be recognized as the preferred Technical University in Ghana and Africa for raising the next generation of industry captains for national, regional and global transformation’, with our Niche Area being Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Our Motto is ‘De3 Onnim no sua a Ohunu’ to wit, ‘They that learn discover’. The Core values of the Institution are ‘Excellence, Competence, Competitiveness, Collaboration and Professionalism’.

Workshop on Research and Grantsmanship

Senior Members and Senior Staff of the Sunyani Technical University (STU) have been taken through a 2-day workshop on Research and Grantsmanship to broaden their horizon on how to develop research proposals that could attract grants for their implementation.

The programme was facilitated by Dr. Violet Makuku, Quality Assurance Specialist, Workshops Co-ordinator & Project Manager of the Harmonization of African Higher Education Quality Assurance and Accreditation (HAQAA) Initiative, Association of African Universities (AAU).

She challenged the participants to attach maximum seriousness to research to help address some of the bottlenecks militating against the growth of their institutions and the society at large.

Dr. Makuku said anyone preparing to undertake a research should first identify a problem before arriving at a topic for the exercise.

Earlier in his opening remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ing. Kwadwo Adinkrah-Appiah underscored the importance of research in an institution such as STU.

He expressed the hope that the programme would go a long way to encourage the participants to come out with various research works that enhance their capacity and further sell the University.

“Remember that when you come out with a research work, the credit does not only come to you but your institution as well, and this contributes to the university rankings.

As part of the training programme, which was mainly interactive, participants were grouped and tasked to identify a problem, write a statement of the problem, the aim, objectives that are likely to be achieved in a given period and set research questions/hypothesis.

Entrepreneurship Hub & Business Ideas Incubation Centre

The Sunyani Technical University’s Entrepreneurship Hub and Business Ideas Incubation Centre has officially been launched as part of measures to motivate students to become successful job creators and entrepreneurs.

It is, among others, expected to empower students of the University through skills development, training, and awareness creation as well as shape business ideas.

The centre is being managed by the Business/Entrepreneurship Development and External Funding Unit (BEDEFU) of the University and operates in collaboration with the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme and the Ghana Enterprises Agency (GEA), formerly the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI).

Speaking at the launch, the Director of Business Support Franklin Owusu Karikari, the Director of Business Support at the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP) commended STU for setting up the centre to help nurture and train young people to come out with innovative and business ideas.

He announced plans by the NEIP to outdoor a programme meant to convert Project Works by final-year university students into actionable and profitable business ventures. Under the programme, he explained, each university would be required to select and submit its top ten best project works to NEIP.

According to him, authors of the selected Project Works would then be contacted and taken through training on their chosen projects after which they would be given start-up capital to bring their dreams into fruition.

This would go a long way to ensure that the practice where Project Works usually submitted by final-year students of tertiary institutions prior to graduation and usually end up on shelves would become a thing of the past.

The Pro Vice-Chancellor of STU, Prof. Justice Solomon Korantwi-Barimah, added his voice to call on the youth to think outside the box and come out with problem-solving ideas which make meaningful impacts on the country and the world at large.

He pledged management’s commitment to efforts aimed at empowering students to be creative and to attain greater height in their academic and career pursuits.

In a message, the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology, Prof. Jones Lewis Arthur noted that the Business Ideas Incubation Centre seeks to become a catalyst in facilitating the emergence of competent first-generation entrepreneurs and transition of existing SMEs into growth-oriented enterprises through entrepreneurship education, training, research and institution building.

“Students connected to the Centre would be counseled to take up innovative projects in their career, for which the students will be supported with technical expert counseling to execute the project, access funds required to execute the project, and continuous monitoring to complete the business model”, he explained.

Earlier in his welcoming remarks, the Head of BEDEFU, Mr. Kwabena Adjei, underscored the critical role of the centre in shaping students to become job creators and not job seekers.
